When it comes to duty gear, the days of the big clunky black boots are thankfully behind us. Today's options are lighter, more weather resistant and offer greater features for comfort than ever before.

Take the Blackhawk Ultralight Side Zip Boot. Not only are these boots constructed with Vibram outsoles, which are heat and tear resistant, but they also contain an Ortholite cushion insole treated to reduce odor and fungus. The suede and Cordura fabric of the boot itself retains the strength of the suede while lightening the overall weight of the boot.

Other features, like the speed lace toggle, mean that you can quickly set the boot up exactly as you like and then rapidly remove and don as needed. Generous padding means the boots won't cause undue agitation, and the Dri-Lex inner lining means that even if you're working extra-hard, your feet will stay nice and dry.

MSRP: $178.95. Available in black and desert tan. Wide sizes are available.
